Extended Deadline

       ISSAC is the yearly premier international symposium in Symbolic and Algebraic Computation that provides an opportunity to learn of new developments and to present original research results in all areas of symbolic mathematical computation. ISSAC'2001 will be locally hosted by the University of Western Ontario at London and the Ontario Research Centre for Computer Algebra (ORCCA).
       Original research results and insightful analyses of current concerns are solicited for submission. Papers will be reviewed by a program committee and referees. Survey articles may be suitable for submission if identified as such, they will be considered in a separate category from the research papers. Proceedings will be distributed at the symposium.

Authors are invited to submit papers (Postscript or PDF) to the program committee chair before January 22, 2001. The preferred method of submission is by using the

ISSAC Web Paper Submission System

Please note the submission system may be inaccessbible for approximately 24 hours during the weekend of January 13-14. It should be fully operational by 11 pm GMT on Sunday, January 14.

The submission should contain a scholarly exposition of ideas, techniques, and results, including motivation and a clear comparison with related work. More details may be given in an appendix. 
Authors may submit additional background reference material that is not widely available. 
Submissions must not substantially duplicate work published or submitted for publication elsewhere. 

Papers must be in English and should not exceed 8 pages in the standard format for ACM proceedings, or 20 to 22 pages (35 to 40 pages for surveys) of text in LaTeX 12pt article style. Final formatting requirements will be based  on the

ACM Proceedings Templates,

for instance in LaTeX2e you should use the


document class file to format your document. Authors of accepted papers will be required to sign the ACM copyright agreement. 

If an author is unable to provide a Postscript or PDF version of her/his paper via the Web Submission System, six copies of it should be mailed to the Program Committee Chair to arrive by the above date (hard deadline). Authors whose access to reproduction facilities is severely limited may submit a single copy of their paper. Please state the contact author's name, address and telephone number, as well as fax and e-mail addresses if available. 

Notification. Authors will be sent notification of acceptance or rejection by e-mail on or before March 12, 2001. A final copy of each accepted paper will be required by April 2, 2001. This is again a firm deadline. An author of each accepted paper must attend the Conference and present the paper, or make arrangements to have it presented.

A poster session is organized separately, please consult the Call for Posters. 


This award will be given to the best student author. An author is eligible if full-time student at the time of submission, this should be indicated.
